I'm using PHPMailer to generate various email. It can use the unix sendmail command or send via SMTP to a mail server. Which would inmotionhosting prefer, or which is the better performer for sending mail?

Hello Randyhamlin,

There are many thousands of websites that use the sendmail command using a form. The performance is going to be negligible so it's really a matter of what you find easier. SMTP will be using a specific IP address for sending out mail on a shared server. Whereas on a VPS or dedicated, it will be the same IP as the website. Bear in mind that outbound email is monitored. You will want to keep email rates at under 250/hour.

Hello Randyhamlin,

I meant to say, the "difference in performance is going to be negligble" - sorry about missing that part!
